I don't know why. But today seemed to be a day for stumbling across depressing or disheartening articles.

I'm linking them here, because I think both topics need to be thought of or discussed more.

One is a relatively 'famous' author Marion Zimmer Bradley and a heads up to those that it is a topic that includes child abuse among other things.

The second is a harsh reminder about how fast consumerism and buying and chucking out clothes 'yearly' only based on fashion is ruining our world. Sorry for the downer guys.


Let's end this post on a lighter note.

I have a movie discount voucher to use in the next 7 days, so I'll likely head to the movies soon.

Anyone have an opinion on what I should watch?

Which to watch first

Absolutely Fabulous

I feel like this a step-back-in-time kind of post.

I really failed keeping up logging into LJ weekly over the busy school holiday period of work.
And last night I went to bed way too late and I'm super tired today after covering someone's shift, and there's a few family things. When isn't there I guess? So this isn't a 'what I've been reading/watching lately' post. Its a bit more random than that.


I got home today to find this article about Honey Suckleweeks. I was shocked to say the least. However after reading it, I think I do vaguely remember reading or hearing about the reported engagement and then fatal accident of her interest. So I can only imagine how difficult that would have been if true. I haven't caught up on Foyle's War to be honest. I hope to, one day. But she captivated me so much back then that my fandom self is amazed that she's not the President of USA by now. And when I look at either current candidates it doesn't deter those odd past self thoughts!


Second topic today it was mad_jaks birthday yesterday (29th) so I wanted to mention a hopefully happy birthday wish to the internet as a whole because I have no idea who is on here anymore, and more specifically mad_jaks if she happened to be here, haha. I think one of the first few 'overseas' LJ friends I stumbled across via another LJ friend and always seemed to be a sensible calming voice, even whilst promoting sometimes unpopular DW or TW pairings. Then into NCIS. Brilliant really.


So there goes me being all stuck in the past for today.
I hope, if anyone does read this, you're having a much more pleasant time in the present or whatever time period you're thoughts are drifitng over. :)

So last weekend Oz Comic Con was on. I didn't volunteer, and in the end I didn't even go on the Sunday. The one day I had off from work. But to make myself sadder that I was SO near to John Barrowman I walked past it to get to a DFO sale for Queens Birthday weekend, to try and find some coats and jackets in my size for winter (using gift vouchers I won last year and need to use up by November). So, I made the 'sensible' choice. Not spending 30 bucks on entry plus 70 to get a photo with John... but his social media posts made me so jealous. I had a few friends/con goers I know able to get into his panels and ohhh man. Hurry up and come back here Mr Barrowman!

And this weekend Supanova in Sydney was on and one of my first 'favourite' authors, or more the fact that it was a series or two I could follow is up there, and again next weekend in Perth's Supanova.... Tamora Pierce!!! *flails*
So much goodness I've missed.


TV viewings
~started on Brooklyn Nine-Nine s3 (forgot how amazing this show is!)
~Broke Girls some of s5
~Hart of Dixie (almost finished s1)

So... I unintentionally fell face forward into a binge watching fugue of Younger this week.
I blame the fact that I now find it similar to Being Erica. Both females working their way up in assistant jobs in publishing/editing.

However, I was only going to finish season 1 off. I ended up starting and finishing season 2 also! Whoops. And that ending, all the possibilities! Alas, I caved to my inner demon child of fandom again, and went looking for fanfiction... there. is. none!! I even checked the prompt list for this month and next's smallfandomfest
on the off chance someone hadn't written it but had thought of a good idea. Nada. :(

Not even gen Younger fic, let alone either of the two pairings I am crushing on right now. My fandom heart is crushed again.

So here is another list of my last week or so tv habits.
ps. if you happen to find Younger fanfiction please link me??

+Younger s1 & s2
+Lip Sync battle (random eps)
+The Blacklist finished the last two eps of s3
+Lucifer s1 finished

So I really only wanted to start posting here more regularly after I found a different layout/header but here I am again.

Only really one thought of the day.
I just managed to pull myself away from some Zootopia fanfiction reading, that I somehow found myself in again. And boy, when I'm there its like a pure high and I never know how I even existed before the movie was in my life. I really need to see it again.

Also, I really need to remember to breathe when seeing drawings of Judy/Nick or stories involving them. ded from de cute.


edited: Hold up, it seems I found that Alex Kingston icons are an antidote that released the pressure in my chest. All is good again. As you were. Breathes deeply.

So, I've been trawling the back ends of LJ again. Been tempted to post so many thing at once, its a little overwhelming really.

Like there's a meme thing you put up and get people to ask questions you answer each day a month and I've had some post/topic ideas from others postings... but a good old fashioned ramble is what I think I'll stick to on/off over some sporadic but hopefully at least a few times a week for the next few weeks.

I was on Twitter and they now have a polls feature like here has had for ages. It made me miss my poll and quiz days from here a bit?
Anyway, I think instead of talking extensively over episodes of tv, maybe I'll list what tv shows I've watched at the end of a week or something? Like x, b, c, d, were watched and I read this ** book.

Well, for last week I watched a bit of Arrow (s3), Flash (s1), Haven (s3) - only finished Haven. Kind of drawing out finishing the dvds of the first two I think. But Haven hurts my feelings more strangely enough. And I don't have anymore of it on dvd -yet. I have a gift voucher coming but I'm not sure if I'll use it for that, or Being Erica (if I do I'll wait for mid year or a sale) or an eReader.

I got back from my USA trip on the weekend. Glad to be home safe!
There are some stories there but that's for another day. Possibly.

I saw this fic prompting thing on the friends page, and thought it looked cool.

Please keep in mind I haven't written fic very regularly in a few years, so if it turns out more like ooc Crack!Fic you have been warned!
Surely if you're reading this you know where to find my fandoms etc.
But really I am leaving it pretty open, fandom of anything I watch, any character combos since it won't necessarily be adult or romance inclined.

Since it's Valentine's day, I figured that I would do this 3-sentence-ficlet-request meme. Just because it says Valentine's Day doesn't mean that it has to be about Valentine's Day. Whatever you would like it to be about. If you'd like one or more, please comment here with all of the following:

1. One fandom - any of the fandoms found here, or any of your fandoms that you think I know something about.
2. The pairing. (M/M, F/M, F/F, Threesome, you choose) The characters
3. What kind of ficlet would you like? Remember it has to be done in 3 sentences! (Romantic, Fluff, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Smut, Any details you would like it to be about)
4. A prompt (which is optional, if you have an idea you want let me know, just remember 3 sentences is all we get haha)

Basically, I am so indecisive tonight. I hope you are all doing well, I am hanging in there at times, floating at other times.

Instead of trawling the fanfictions which don't seem very updating tonight, I'll try and watch a 20-30min show and check back to see if anyone's helped me choose what I should focus on next. Or maybe I'll check it in an 1hr or tomorrow.

So, I quickly went through my friends list via the 'manage page' to see if I missed people removing me in the four months I've not posted or read anything here. Yikes that's almost my longest time I think... pleasantly suprised to see none, or maybe just one removal. But that may also mean some people have dropped away from here?

I also found names I don't quite remember and some accounts finally purged/deleted. Not highlighting/making it a livejournal link name because the deleted accounts may end up linked to someone I don't know anymore. Oh well.

Purged *waves goodbye to those I did have some communication with previously*-
snowdarkred -you had very intelligent discussions and I will miss some of your ncis stories.
pyroclastic -on/off discussions, and glee of course

Accounts with name changes(?): *why are they both 's' beginning accounts hahaha

So long absence again. Have been up to a lot and not a lot, as per usual. ;)

I see only three signed in guests visited my journal the last month, whoops, it is looking a bit bare.

Talking about bears, oh we weren't? "There's a bear in there, and a chair as well..."

Playschool? Simon Burke! I was so pleased on Saturday I got the final last, ever last for this season cheapest price ticket to Melbourne production of La Cage Aux Folles! I saw the show (final show of their run) last night! Oh it was fun! Simon was brilliant as expected and I did love Todd's character acting. I'm a little used to John Barrowman's versions of the songs so I don't want to compare their singing. It was FIVE years in the making, waiting, hoping. For that to happen. SO glad Simon was cast. Anyone with me back then when I fangirled over Barrowman AND Burke being in the same musical together? Here is the post to refresh old memories. Now I just need to see John Barrowman perform something live, wouldn't that be fun! Seeing Rhonda Burchmore and Gary Sweet is always a bit of fun too. Only unfortunate part was I couldn't organise to go to an earlier performance date and do stage door to meet the cast in person, being last night and all they probably had cast party wraps.

I ended up browsing through Youtube videos post show, listening to Barrowman's songs again. The Doctor & I! I forgot about that song, hadn't heard it since '10. But so great, know I've seen Wicked for the first time this year too.


Tonight I saw an advanced screening of the movie The Imitation Game. It was a lot funnier than I expected, and do recommend.
